Did you know that Czech teams provided video evidence of the poor weather conditions last weekend?
posted: May 30th, 2013 Yesterday's NSL News update pointed out how unfortunate teams were with the weather situation last weekend, especially at Skydive Twin Cities in the Northern Plains and in Pribram in the Czech Republic.

Judges Vaclav Cervinka, Josef Pich and Michaela Hasilova were not able to see enough for a reasonable evaluation, and... (more)
Did you know that Midwest and Czech Republic were far in distance but close in weather?
posted: May 29th, 2013 Last weekend's leaderboard is complete and shows that bad weather had a serious impact at all three locations (Midwest, Northern Plains, Czech Republic).
Chicagoland Skydiving Center and Pribram in the Czech Republic are very far away from each other and still had both only two complete rounds.
The situation in the Midwest was even worse, as only two teams had 35 seconds of working time in the whole meet (Round 2 in the AA Class). All other jumps were made from reduced altitude, and the scores have been extrapolated from 20/25 seconds to 35 seconds.
Did you know that last weekend's draw was a tough start into the AAA Class?
posted: May 28th, 2013 The Northern Plains Skydiving League launched its 2013 season with five teams at Skydive Twin Cities.
The weather did not allow the completion of all six planned rounds, except for one team. The Honey Badgers managed to go through all six Rookie Class sequences.
Two of the five teams came back from previous NPSL seasons, while the three new teams included two Rookie Class lineups.
Those Guys showed up for the first time at the last NPSL meet of the 2011 season and then missed only one of the four meets last year. (more)

By then, the IPC (International Parachuting Commission) had not decided which skydiving center would host the World Championship of Formation Skydiving 2014. The NSL News followed up when this decision was made and reported on 15 February 2013 that Prostejov... (more)
